GOSHEN, Ind. — Goshen College recently recognized 188 students, for excellence in academics, on the 2004-05 fall semester Dean’s List.
Students making the Dean’s List must finish in the top 10 percent of students in any one term, according to grade point average, while completing at least 12 hours of course work for a letter grade and taking no courses credit-elect. Current seniors who have a cumulative GPA of 4.0 are exempt from the 12-hour criteria and credit-elect. Only grades from the designated semester are included in the Dean’s List selection process.
The college initiated its Dean’s List during the first semester of the 1999-2000 school year as part of its Honors Program, which highlights the college’s liberal arts excellence and includes an honors colloquium for first-year students, honors seminars, an Annual Student Research Symposium, internships and an honors degree. The list celebrates the achievement of students who have met high academic standards and can motivate students preparing for graduate studies, according to Anita Stalter, Goshen’s academic dean, vice president for academic affairs and professor of education.
Students earning at least a 3.6 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) in Goshen College Division of Adult and External Services also are included in the list – a significant achievement since most DAES students are working adults taking highly personalized night classes.
Goshen College, established in 1894, is a four-year residential Christian liberal arts college rooted in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition. The college’s Christ-centered core values – passionate learning, global citizenship, compassionate peacemaking and servant-leadership – prepare students as leaders for the church and world. Recognized for its unique Study-Service Term program, Goshen has earned citations of excellence in Barron’s Best Buys in Education, Kaplan’s “Most Interesting Colleges” guide and U.S.News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” edition, which named Goshen a “least debt college.” Visit http://www.goshen.edu.
